Draft Thanet Local Plan - 2031 - Pre-Submission Publication, Regulation 19 Amount of Housing SP11

The Previous version of the local plan suggested a provision of 12000 houses. This has risen to 17,140. Studying the historic rise in population in can be seen that in 2011 a sudden rise occurred - I suspect due to migrants from Europe, which is unlikely to be repeated given the forthcoming BREXIT. See graphs attached at the end of this submission. Both graphs suggest a 2031 population for Thanet of around 150,000 - a rise of some 25000 from 2011. At a national average occupancy rate of 2.3 per

Overall Future Sustainability: Minster Parish Council does not believe that the provision of 17,000 houses is sustainable for this district. We have attempted to outline the issues of economic prospects and transport infrastructure above and it is our considered view that the reliance on questionable outcomes and aspirations will have a negative effect on the overall sustainability of this plan. Equally, the delivery over the time period of this plan represents 2.5 to 3 times the historical hous

This letter and its contents are intended to be submitted to the relevant Planning Inspector who will be responsible for the examination of the recently published Local Plan. Would you be kind enough to acknowledge receipt of this letter and of its transmission to the Planning Inspectorate in due course? I am requesting this action because of the increasing reluctance of the Council Officers to engage with its residents on contentious matters, its inability to consider the views of residents a

Objection to the Local Plan There is no evidence for the increase in housing numbers. I feel the local council is trying to offload responsibility for these increases in numbers, because of Central Government instructions, but Central Government has said that it is down to local councils to specify quota. This is contradictory! The local infrastructure as at present, hopelessly inadequate, so especially could not cope with anywhere near the proposed number of houses. With the effects of auster

The Case for a Residential Allocation – Former Gasholder Station Site, St Peters Introduction This statement accompanies our representations to seek the re-allocation of this former gasholder site as a housing allocation in the Local Plan. We explain the important history of the site as an allocation in both the adopted Local Plan and in the previous 2015 draft replacement for that Local Plan. We attach a plan identifying in red the land for which we seek this allocation (the area in blue is

For the attention of the Inspector of Thanet's Local Plan 2018 While we accept that a certain amount of houses need to be built in Thanet, we strongly object to the total amount proposed in the Local Plan, and our reasoning is as follows: The Plan envisages 17140 houses. If one multiplies the above figure with the average family unit of 2.58 ( as per ONS 2010 census), one arrives at an increase in population of 44221.2, add this to the existing population of 141300 ( in 2017) and one gets a p

As a Birchington resident I strongly object to the proposed housing plan. Firstly the plan falls way short of explaining where all the funding for infrastructure is coming from or if it has been secured. Where are all the 5000 jobs coming from ? whilst there will be some increase while the houses and roads get built, what then? we are going to have close to that number of new people moving here, even taking away those that will be allocated social/affordable housing, there is still going to b

I am opposed to the proposal of the amount of housing suggested on the farmland in Westgate. The farmland is even more important to the local community more than ever before due to Brexit. We need to get back to a more sustainable way of life. I am also against the amount of houses suggested as we cannot cope as it is at doctors surgeries. So much so, you can only complain or speak to a doctor concerning one issue or problem. The length of waiting for an appointment is ridiculous as it the wai

TDC should push back on Government which is something they are allowed to do on calculated figures and should also open dialogue with neighbouring authorities who are better situated and able to absorb some of Thanet's number. There is not enough employment to accommodate these additional houses.

Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) In its response dated 20 March 2017, DDC detailed its position in relation to the findings of TDC's Strategic Housing Market Assessment (2016), specifically the disagreement regarding the identified Housing Market Area (HMA) of Thanet, Canterbury and Dover. This differs to DOC's SHMA (2017) that identifies a HMA of Dover and Shepway as most appropriate for the Dover District. With regard to paragraph 9.7 of the Duty to Co-operate Statement (2018) and
